In their new book One-Party Classroom:  How Radical Professors at America's Top Colleges Indoctrinate Students and Undermine Our Democracy, David Horowitz and co-author Jacob Laksin take us inside 12 major universities where radical agendas have been institutionalized and scholarly standards abandoned.  The schools they examine are not the easily avoided bottom of the barrel.  Rather, they are an all-too-representative sampling of American higher education today.

Horowitz is president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center.  Laksin is a senior editor of the online FrontPage Magazine, which is published by the Horowitz Freedom Center.

For One-Party Classroom, published by Crown Forum, Horowitz and Laksin have conducted the first comprehensive, in-depth, multi-year investigation of what is being taught in colleges and universities across the country -- public to private, from large state schools to elite Ivy League institutions.  They have systematically scrutinized course catalogs, reading lists, professors' biographies, scholarly records, and the first-person testimonies of students, administrators, and faculty. 

Citing more than 150 specific courses, they reveal how academic standards have been violated and demonstrate beyond dispute that systematic indoctrination in radical politics is now an integral part of the liberal-arts curriculum of America's colleges.  In disturbingly large segments of today's universities, the book shows, students are no longer taught how to think, but are told what to think.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports the Horowitz Freedom Center.
